My dear Papa,
I hope you are well. Helen and I are well, but Mama was sick in bed all day yesterday so we cood not go home. We brought your notes all over to Grandpa's because Mrs. Bush had to go home and the moskeetos are just awful agin, and poor little Brownie howls about them other wise he is as well as usual. Baby could not play in the garden at all. Dear Papa why do you not write to me? It is so lonesome without you How soon do you think you can come home?
Poor Grandma is not well at all and she looks very pale. baby too is writing a little letter to you and she just now "Wanda you must not shake the table when I write, it makes my dizzy" Baby sends many kisses to you and says she is sorry that she did not kiss you when you went away. Dear Papa good-by,
Your loving little girl
Annie Wanda Muir.
